Good Lovin from (I believe) 4/27/71. No--there's no Pig rap, but after the drum solo comes a jam that rivals the one from 4/29 between Alligator and GTRFB. What is important here is that either of these jams contain the quintessential examples of the band turning on dimes, tossing out ideas like holy loaves, Phil pushing like he's going to give birth, Bobby doing his Bobby chording, and Jerry! On the GL, there's a point at which Phil and Bobby just stop and Jerry just keeps on going with an amazing riff which he then plants on top of the returning Bob and Phil, rolling it down into a moment of wha-wha- relaxation before taking off again. This GL--like 4-29--just blows the shit out of the prissy not gonna chance it jams of the post retirement band.

Easy.

The HELP>SLIPKNOT>FRANKLIN'S TOWER
from One From the Vault,
8/13/75.

Clocks in at just under 15 minutes total.

For a continuous, self-contained, 15-minute span of prime, pure, perfect brothers Dead, you can't get much better than that.
